Scarf Round Robin

A group of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers are doing a Scarf Round Robin. Suggested constraints are 4mm needles, DK-ish homespun or home-dyd yarn, up to 45 stitches wide and each section approx 6-10 inches long. Mine has several different stripes from three diffrent dye sessions: orange, blue and purple.
My first section (on the left) was spun from a mix of orange and purple. Second section from the orange with some of the reddier bits from that same orange dye session. Third stripe from the blue, fourth from the blue with a few bits of the purple. Fifth and last stripe was spun from some of all three dye lots. It is all just knitted in moss stitch, so it won't curl at the edges. I just wanted to celebrate the glorious mix of colours.

I'm so impatient, I want to send this off to the next person and receive someone else's starter piece and add to that. I'm rather hoping that I will have to dye some fleece specially for the sections I add to everyone's pieces

Colours are lovely Ruthy. Sorry for not commenting yesterday.

I'm very jealous of your spinning and dying abilities. And of your ability to use a sewing machine!
